First up, the challenge this week over at Cupcake Craft Challenges was to incorporate "SCARY CREATURES" into your project. Although Mr. Frankie here looks only a wee bit on the scary side, I thought he could pass for the theme. That's why I threw in a few spider brads, too...just to make sure! Spiders are scary, no doubt!
My color combo came from the Colour Q blog. I am literally 20 minutes away from hitting the deadline for their weekly challenge as I type this, whew!
The sketch was based on this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge. My panel is a little larger then the sketch, but c'mon, Frankie is a big guy. He wouldn't fit, so I just stretched it out a little! :)
I found some patterned paper in my supply which had the exact same colors as the challenge, which was pretty awesome. I also added some black dots to my scalloped border to give it some interest and the sparkly sentiment is a chipboard sticker. (I still want to decorate the inside of the card, too, but will have to add those pics later...tick tock!)
Frankie is stylin' in his colored purple pants and jacket and shoes with the orange trim. I actually tried to shade around the image, which I have seen many people do. I think it looks okay but I know I have a lot to learn in that area. There you have it, one (sort-of) scary creature who is on the hunt for some chocolaty Halloween treats! Can you hear him now: "mmmm, Kit Kat, Snickers, Twix, GOOD."! That's right, Frankie sure knows where it's at! :)
Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day today!Happy Haunting,
